Can't help with that.

The pkg-message should probably be updated with something more recent, I
doubt that many people are still updating from v1.x. I can't find
anything about the rc.d file or pkg-message in that patch, however. If
it actually fixes these issues (bring documentation/rc scripts in sync
with current version), it would probably be a good idea to state this in
the description, the current description makes it sound like some

This suggests to me that dbus is non-optional, at least for some
programs (eg. hp-systray, although I'm not sure what this would do
without GUI support).

Thanks, missed this. I'll disable the rc script.
